I have been playing the trumpet for over 40 yrs. and have always been interested in the bass guitar. I play in our church praise band and sometimes play the bass instead of the trumpet. In my last church I played the bass for about 6 months in the praise band ( they had a guy who played the bass very well but they asked me to play because I played what was writtened and he added so much filling he wasn't part of the group he acted as if he was the soloist we were all back-up.I love Blues and practice at home to CD,s. I really enjoy doing this even though I am no good.
